Dear UMBC Student,
As another semester gets into full swing, we'd like for you to take a moment to think back to your first couple of weeks at UMBC. Are you amazed at how far you've come since then? Would you like for new freshmen and transfer students to find their place at UMBC? If so, the O-Team is looking for you!
The Orientation Peer Advisors (OPAs), Peer Facilitators (IHU, TRS, and COMP course co-instructors), and Welcome Week Leaders (Woolies) that make up the O-Team are a diverse group of undergraduate students who play a critical role in the success of UMBC's first-year programs. O-Team members serve as University representatives to new students and parents through the summer and into the new academic year. As part of the O-Team, you will enhance your leadership skills while making a difference in the lives of new UMBC students.
If this sounds exciting to you, the Offices of Undergraduate Admissions and Orientation, Campus Life, Residential Life, and Undergraduate Education would like to encourage you to apply to be a member of our team! We encourage applicants of all backgrounds, majors, involvements, and interests.
If you are interested in helping us welcome new students to UMBC by becoming an OPA, Woolie, or Peer Facilitator, please visit the O-Team website to find the application and position descriptions. Please complete the online application no later than Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at 12 p.m.
If you have any questions, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
